At home, Stade Brestois dominated but suffered to score against Olympique Lyonnais. 1-0 victory thanks to a goal from Steve Mounié (88th).
With only two points on the clock, we quickly understood that the 16th were facing the 3rd in Ligue 1. From the 5th minute of play, Eric Roy's men had already struck three times on goal including a good attempt from Satriano. Anthony Lopes relaxed well for the first time and conceded the first of Brest's 10 corners. Del Castillo, in very good form this evening, also tried several times to shake the net. But it was Le Douaron who had the biggest chance of the match in the 23rd minute, smashing the crossbar. After new corners and several dangerous situations, they did not materialize this domination. The two teams came back neck and neck at half-time, in a match made pleasant by the activity of the Bretons.
While one might have thought the Gones came back with better intentions in the second act, the Brestois immediately regained control of the match with a new strike, this time from Le Douaron (48'). Unconvinced by his men, Fabio Grosso decided to make three changes very early, bringing in Baldé, Kadewere and Maitland-Niles in the 51st minute. But the entrants struggled to change the face of Lyon. Pierre Lees-Melou, excellent this evening, slalomed through the defense and sent a shot from the right, repelled by Lopes (57'). Douaron then missed an excellent cross from Chardonnet, tackling the ball next to the Lyon goals (61'). The entry of Cherki in the 79th did not energize the Lyon troops, who ended up breaking down in the 87th. Mounié, who had returned a few minutes earlier in place of Satriano, took a first cross which he sent onto the post. Lala then delivered a magnificent cross to the head of the former Montpellier who sent the ball into the back of the net. Lopes saved his team from 2 to 0 against Brahimi then Mounié. Mr. Thomas Léonard finally freed the Lyon supporters from a distressing spectacle. Stade Brestois climbs to first place on the podium while Lyon is stuck in the crisis and is at the bottom of the ranking. The Bretons delivered an impressive performance, dominating OL from start to finish. Fabio Grosso undoubtedly accomplished the work he has before him this evening.
